Reviews and Awards for PowerWashCompany.comHenry Bockman was named the Daily Point of Light for the date of March 12, 2007. The Daily Point of Light is granted to individuals who reflect the spirit of the Points of Light Foundation, and he is the 3418th recipient of the honor. Henry Bockman believes in the value of businesses drawing from their expertise to impact their own communities in positive ways. He has applied this philosophy through his own business over the years, and, for his various public contributions, has been honored by the Points of Light Foundation with his own designated day.

In 2003, Bockman created a nationwide program called “Clean Across America” that called upon individuals who did pressure washing and restoration services to come together to clean parks, playgrounds and public gathering places. The concept was embraced by the Power Washers of North America and other contractors who followed Bockman’s leadership in taking on charitable projects on varied scales. “Clean Across America” took a major step forward in 2005 when the home of baseball, Doubleday Stadium in Cooperstown, NY was selected as the site of a comprehensive cleaning project just prior to that year’s annual induction ceremony for the National Baseball Hall of Fame. Even more business owners and industry leaders journeyed to Washington, D.C. in 2006 when Bockman organized a similar cleaning project for the Jefferson Memorial and Lincoln Memorial. Almost a mile of hoses, more than 50,000 gallons of water and six rigs were used by a group of pressure washers to clean the Memorials alone. Bockman not only supervised these endeavors but also took a pressure washing hose in hand to play a direct part in their successful completion. Surprisingly, no one could recall when, if ever, these three aforementioned national treasures had ever been cleaned on such a large scale. Since its inception, more than $250,000 worth of pressure washing services have been donated through “Clean Across America” and more projects of varied sizes will be tackled in 2007 and the years to come. The phrase “points of light” was made popular during George H.W. Bush’s 1988 Republican National Convention Acceptance Address where the soon-to-be president spoke of the need for individuals, groups and businesses to give something back to the world around them.
